About the Pink Sisters Chapel and Convent
The Adoration Chapel of the Pink Sisters is located in the Convent of Divine Mercy, which is one of the Catholic Monasteries in Tagaytay. This chapel was founded by the German priest Blessed Arnold Janssen to support by prayers and sacrifice the first two missionary foundations that he established.
While the nuns are often called 'Pink Sisters' because of their pink habit, they are officially part of the Sister Servants of the Holy Spirit of Perpetual Adoration. This institute of enclosed nuns follows a solemn vow to separate themselves from the outside world strictly.
The nuns are said to be offering prayers for the world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so visitors can ask them for prayers. Inside the chapel, people can write their intentions or prayers and drop it on the box so the nuns can read it.
The chapel is open for masses every 6 AM on weekdays and 6 AM and 5:30 PM on weekends. Accommodations near the Pink Sisters Chapel and Convent If you are planning on visiting the chapel and would want to spend a night in the city, here are some nearby accommodations you may consider:
